Double-Reverse Psychology

Sarah Silverman made A Joke. Amazingly, idiots were idiots about it.

And still people can manage to make idiocy idioter.

First we have a stupid story:
In her apology, Silverman tweeted:”It wasn’t funny for me to talk so casually about abortion. But when they take our right to choose away it will be HILARIOUS!” And: “The government should STAY OUT of our PRIVATE LIVES except when it comes to who we marry & what we do w our uteruses!!”

It got her in some hot water. The Drudge Report drew attention to her tweets and the London’s Daily Mail accused Silverman of “joining America’s current War on Women” and “reigniting the women’s rights movement via Twitter.”

Some speculated that Silverman’s comment was designed to bring attention to a potential Romney administration.
That's dumb enough on its own, but it's Politico. So add some Nolte:
What Silverman originally tweeted was an obvious joke, a not very funny joke dedicated to shock value, but a joke nonetheless.

In a perfect world, she shouldn't have been pressured to apologize or walk it back or whatever the case is.

But because Silverman and her fellow Hollywood Leftists supported Barack Obama in 2008, we now live in a much less perfect world than we did four years ago where the Hollywood chickens are just starting to come home to roost.

After all, it was Obama who ginned up this phony "War on Women" nonsense and now, like Bill Maher and Louis C.K. before her, Silverman is finding the circle of what she can and can't joke about tightened a little more.

So sorry, Sarah.

Your rules. Not ours.
Yes my friends, Obama is the puppet master who makes Matt Drudge, The Daily Mail, and nitwits at Big Hollywood dance dance dance.

It's a well-known fact that comedians should stick to tame material if they want to be funny.

Yeah, who's funnier than Bob Hope?

On a less serious note, there is absolutely nothing that can't be blamed on Obama.

I am curious as to the mechanism where Obama created the War on Women. Does he have incriminating photos of rush Limbaugh?

I see A212 getting some stick in that whiskeyfire thread, that always cheers me up.

Remote-controlled drones.

mikey said...

I feel compelled to inquire of my good friend Substance just what sort of drone would he be thinking of that is NOT remote controlled?

Substance McGravitas said...

Drones can be autonomous.

The Hollywood chickens are coming home to roost.

Is this a koan? Some right-wing I-ching? Word chicken salad? WTF is a "Hollywood chicken"?!

I was picturing a snooty famous chicken wearing a boa and sunglasses. Talk about a Hollywood chicken!

wiley said...

There is an entry in wikipedia about "Hollywood Freeway Chickens". I'll give it a shot.

"But because Silverman and her fellow Hollywood Leftists supported Barack Obama in 2008, we now live in a much less perfect world than we did four years ago where the Hollywood chickens are just starting to come home to roost under the Vineland Avenue off-ramp of the Hollywood Freeway (U.S. Route 101) in Los Angeles, California."

I'm not feeling it.
